Fall 2019 - Dr. Moberg-Parker taught this class for the first 5 weeks and then it was Dr. Hill. Her lectures were ok, a little unclear and vague at times. I liked Parker because she gave us these learning objectives before each lecture so that you knew exactly what to focus on and what would be on the test. She also required online quizzes before the lectures which were easy points. She also used clickers. Dr. Hill didn’t have either of these things and he didn’t use clickers. The exam questions required a lot of designing experiments, especially for Parker’s questions. Dr. Hill’s questions were more memorization based, but nothing too difficult. For studying I would recommend focusing on the learning objectives that Dr. Parker gave and the slides for Dr. Hill. The grade breakdown was: 100 points midterm 1 (mean was 75.81, median 77.0) 100 points midterm 2 (mean was 74.78, median was 76.0) 150 points final exam (stats weren’t released) 45 points discussion worksheets (you can miss 1) 50 points discussion participation (you rate the other people in your group) 36 points clickers (3 dropped) 60 points pre-class quizzes (2 dropped) 10 points pre-class and post-class survey (graded on completion) There was also this extra credit forum where you would summarize a news article about microbiology. I recommend doing this early in the quarter because you can’t repeat a topic someone else has done and it’s difficult to find an article when everyone else is at the same time and Dr. Parker was pretty strict about this.
